Sony registers domains for PlayStation Cloud

Sony has tied up the domain names PlayStation-Cloud.com, PlayStation-Cloud.org and PS-Cloud.net.

The domain registrations were found by Internet super sleuth, Superannuation and if we're right, will link to Sony's buyout of Gaikai in some way.

Sony registered a trademark for PS Cloud back in 2009, which just three days ago was re-registered to Gaikai. So for it to now register the domains could suggest that Gaikai is now to be known as PS Cloud, which could have all manner of implications.?

We won't know anything concrete until tomorrow of course, but things are certainly getting interesting.

Cloud streaming of old games is almost guaranteed. But locking up domains? I wonder if there will be the possibility of playing these games via browser? Or tablet? In the same vain as OnLive

If they're planning on cloud streaming games I can see it as a good idea, but internet just isn't as advanced in some areas as it needs to be for these kind of features at the moment..

I have to agree. Although I think things like this are a great idea in theory, console manufacturers are jumping the gun a little and are risking completely cutting off potential customers in areas where internet access isn't as good as it should be (or even available at all in some cases).

Cloud streaming isn't a mandatory thing. Its just an option. The PS4 will come with a disc drive and play games in the traditional. Streaming is an option for those who have the capacity and want to have a very large library of games to play whenever they want. I feel being able to play these games may have a lot to do with Playstation Plus as well. But we will have to see tomorrow.

And there are loads of people with capacity for streaming. Maybe not in the UK, but in 2013-14, 95% of Britain is supposed to have access to fibre optic broadband. In America, they're now being touted for Googles 1gb broadband. It's going to be available for everyone if they can get their hands on it, and it's a great feature for them. Sadly, I won't be able to get it till I move house.

this will help people such as myself get games on day one by downloading like steam. only problem is sony at the moment when they have new releases such as devil may cry on the playstation store they charge you much more than you can get it from retailers. examples: dmc - £50, dead space 3 - £50

It is not Sony that sets the prices on the PS Store (other than for first party titles) they are set by the game publishers themselves.

One would hope Sony have improved on there security aspects before moving to a cloud environment. Especially a public cloud environment! The cloud is still in it infancy and alot of people don't appreciate the full potential of this but also the fact that Sony and gamers a like are vulnerable. By all means this seems like a great idea but currently that's al it is.... Also I agree that Internet access is crucial as well as speed and who's goin to purchase titles if there that expensive. Also although this may make things easier for Sony but for places like the UK this will damage the retail industry even further and effect the economy. Joe do you think this is a good move on the whole? Can Sony deliver this after there issues with application security before?
